This "trial" of Mohammad is reminiscent of the trumped up show trials conducted in the Soviet Union, China, Iran and Nazi Germany (just to name a few of the more notorious regimes). Sadly the U.S. has joined that list of ignoble regimes.

Lastly, the newspaper story of the U.S. and the Philippines agreeing to expand the U.S. military presence in that country; the U.S. currently has a naval armada operating in the South China Sea. Its purported purpose is to protect China's smaller neighbors from the Chinese colossus. In reality it's an example of widening U.S. hegemony in Asia to contain China and disguised as "protection".

The local disputes in the South China Sea between China and its neighbors including the Philippines, Viet Nam and Malaysia have existed for decades. Now with mineral deposits being discovered, primarily over oil and gas rights, all are claiming sovereignty and thus the heightened tensions. But the heightened U.S. presence, again disguised as providing protection can only exacerbate the disputes and the U.S. can be justly accused of interfering outside its "sphere of influence" while raising unnecessary tensions and a possible confrontation with China.

Of course, all of these newspaper stories depict an innocent U.S. acting benignly and protective of U.S. interests and its people. Nothing could further from the truth.

It's just another example of the corporate media being a mouthpiece for U.S. government propaganda which does little to keep the people properly informed or increase their understanding of our government's true Machiavellian purposes.
